TNA Xplosion: Air Date 17th December 2014

And here we are with (probably) the last review post of this week, and it's another episode of Xplosion. How was it?

We all knew it was coming. We've seen every other Bootcamp match and there was only one left. And now here it is: EC3 versus Grado.

I've got to be honest: Grado's entrance is a lot better in person. It just lacks a little something without the Madonna lyrics, you know?

Although the "It's yersel!" shout was a nice touch.

But despite that, the match itself was ridiculous and it was wonderful.

Grado was... well. He was Grado. What more can you say?

For all that EC3 is a serious contender, he has a real flair for comedy matches too. And he gelled with Grado surprisingly well.

And it was good to see that America got Grado.

Even with cultures as closely linked as us and the USA, sometimes things don't translate properly. So it was good to see that Grado did.

Awesome stuff.

Ditto the Match of the Week. A Heavyweight Championship match between AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels? You can't get much better than that.

Well. Unless you add Samoa Joe to the mix, I suppose.

And as for the flashbacks... well. Flashbacks to flashbacks: they're still pointless.

I enjoyed this episode of Xplosion. Even though the flashbacks were once again pointless, there was a lot of good in it.

If you haven't caught the EC3 and Grado match, look it up. It's worth your time.
